About the Event
Araceli will discuss the most recent work of her team at the Centric Lab - a neuroscience research lab creating strategies to improve public health. Araceli and co. have developed an anti-racist framework to understand the disproportionate effect of COVID-19 in ethnic minority communities in the city of London. This framework focuses on real living conditions and experiences as factors for susceptibility to disease. It also centres poor health outcomes in the context of the environments people are forced to live in as a result of structural racism.
Through understanding how the environment plays a key role in disease pathology, Centric Lab's works to help rehabilitate people through better urban policy and public health strategies that support health.
